So. I had a evolv table saw from sears bought it new and first upgrade was a new blade. I then needed to make cuts larger then 12 inches and it was not going to cut it among other things, I could not get it to cut strait it was off 1/32 of and inch and was really bother some so after owning it now for a month I decided before I was stuck with it I needed to exhange it or return it either or, but this goes on and on long story short I walked in with the po* evolv and walked it with with a craftsman 10” table saw model 21807 and man night and day difference the sears techs were even helpful enough to help me align it there in store with all their tools at my disposal ill write a review after I put it threw its paces! Let me know what you all think of the craftsman 10” 21807 saw.

Definitely a step in the right direction. Not meaning to take anything away from your new saw, but for the sake of other would-be buyers, the 21807 or similar saws are still not what I’d recommend to most newbies in this price range for furniture building or fine woodworking. If price is the driving force I’d suggest a used full size cast iron belt drive contractor saw with an induction motor.

Used saws like these sell often in my area in the $75 to $250 range:

Craftsman Evolve tools are junk… IMO. The evolve line has the craftsman name on it but is made by a different company. Apparently they are in a sort of “probation” period right now where craftsman is deciding to continue their partnership with them. When I spoke with a salesperson at sears they told me the evolve tools carry the same lifetime warranty as craftsman, but you have to have the receipt… (This is for hand tools of course)

I also have a craftsman table saw and I can’t wait until I can upgrade to a cabinet saw (PM2000 hopefully…)
